Product Recalls In Recent News

Several products have been subject to recalls already this year. If you live in Texas and have used one of these products and have been injured, you may want to contact a Texas personal injury product liability lawyer. They may be able to help you put together a lawsuit that could win you compensation for what you’ve been been through.

Brilliant Blue G

Due to reports of fungal infections, Brilliant Blue G has been recalled, effective for the following lot numbers:

    10132011@6
    10112011@82
    10192011@125

These lot numbers come from Frederick’s Pharmacy. If you have products that match these lot numbers, you may return them to the manufacturer for a refund. If you’ve suffered an eye injury or illness due to these products, be sure to contact a Personal Injury Attorney about the matter.

The recall is effective March 9, 2012. You can read the official page at the FDA website.

 

Guidecraft Children’s Play Theaters

The 4-in-1 Dramatic Play Theater Toys are being recalled by Guidecraft, Inc., a Minnesota-based company. It was discovered that the tory has a hazard that causes it to tip over during use, which could pose a threat to the children using it. The toy can be changed around so that it provides different sets for children to have puppet shows in and weighs just less than 50 pounds in total.

This toy was sold primarily on the Internet and it’s estimated that approximately 1,800 of the units were sold in the US. Guidecraft will provide a replacement or a refund upon request. Be sure to take these toys away from children immediately.

You can read more about this recall at the Consumer Product Safety Commission website.

 

Fresh Garden Highway Cobb Salad

Fresh Garden Highway Cobb Salad with a sell-by date through 2/6/2012 has been identified as being a potential vector for listeria monocytogenes. The products were sold by retailers throughout Texas, according to a press release describing the recall. The establishment number on these products will be P-44056. This will appear near the USDA mark of inspection.

If you purchased these products from a Texas retailer and were stricken with listeria or a related illness, be sure you contact a lawyer about the matter. Companies are most certainly responsible for the damages caused when they put contaminated food out on the market and you’ll want to be sure that you don’t end up dealing with the resulting financial burdens on your own if you were affected by this product.

The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service has more information.

 

What if They’re Not in Texas?

A Texas personal injury and product liability lawyer can sue companies anywhere in the nation. Don’t worry if the defective product that injured you was purchased online or if it was manufactured by a company that’s located outside the borders of Texas.

If you believe that you may have cause to file a lawsuit over being injured by a defective product, be sure to contact an attorney as soon as you can. There are limitations on how long you have to act, so it’s best to contact an attorney right away so that you can explore the options you have available to you and decide whether or not pursuing a lawsuit would be a good choice for you.
